Vintage Cornucopia

If you were a fan of the Elysium City of Templemore and St. Pete City from a couple of years ago, you might want to stop in for a visit at Lutz City. While not exactly the same, the recreation is nevertheless fantastic. I’ve visited Lutz quite often over the last couple of weeks and I just love the autumn feel of this vintage inspired city-sim.

Perfect

Have you ever had a song so stuck in your head that it toys with your emotions? The new song by Ed Sheeran is doing that to me. I can’t stop singing it!

Ironically, the title fits the design of this new sweater by Tetra. Perfect! It’s just long enough to be worn as a dress, or paired with pants or tights and I am absolutely envious of the frilly side ruffles.

I went a little daring and paired the shortness of the sweater with fishnets and thigh high boots from Empire, available at the new round of Collabor88.

On a side rant note, a friend and I were discussing the changes in events over the years. I mean, whatever happened to the Collabor88 of years ago, where most items were just 88L? Now, you’re lucky to find something less than twice that. I get that mesh has advanced and the effort that goes into some of these really amazing creations is worth the extra bucks. Heck, I know I buy my fair share without even glancing at the price. But maybe its just me when I feel that what used to be a bargain event for all avatars has become something that not everyone can afford. There are definitely still too many new avatars out there that need the influence of a good event with top creators to get their foot in the door of non-noobness.

What are your thoughts?

For the month of May, Truth has released Kare- a short/medium wavy do that is perfect for the summer months. But, even better is that Kare is the first glimpse of Truth’s new textures & HUDs as well as a preview of the new stylist HUD.

There are nine new texture/color HUDs in total, as well as the animated stylist HUD, which in Kare’s case, allows you to bring the wavy tresses back and forth on either side!

Autumn Leaves

It’s been a month since Autumn officially began and finally, the edge has come off of the Florida heat (kinda-sorta,) enough so that a sweater is even possible for those that get cold easily. With that being said, Foxes has released a new fur jacket/bra combination for the October round of LuxeBox and I love that it can be worn for multiple seasons.

Glam Affair’s ‘Mina’ for the Epiphany Gacha Event also has some beautiful makeups that bring out the warm, rich tones of the fall season. I love how her skins can be worn with multiple heads and while Catwa’s Bibi isn’t really me, Mina looks just as stunning on Dyana. I mean, look at those lips!
